A former police dispatcher recently posted an amazing story about a domestic violence call; the Reddit story is now going viral.

The user, Crux1836, described one of his most memorable calls as a 911 operator — at first, he thought the call was a prank. He typed out the entire exchange that he had with the caller in his Reddit post.

Dispatcher: 911, where is your emergency?
Caller: 123 Main St.
Dispatcher: Ok, what’s going on there?
Caller: I’d like to order a pizza for delivery. (oh great, another prank call).
Dispatcher: Ma’am, you’ve reached 911
Caller: Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?
Dispatcher: Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?
Caller: Yeah, do you know how long it will be?
Dispatcher: Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? do you have an emergency?
Caller: Yes, I do.
Dispatcher: And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you? (moment of realization)
Caller: Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?
Dispatcher: I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?
Caller: Nope.
Dispatcher: Can you stay on the phone with me?
Caller: Nope. See you soon, thanks.

The dispatcher said in his post that an officer arrived to the woman’s home shortly after; the female had been beaten up and the boyfriend was drunk. The boyfriend was then arrested.
